Album Review

A '92 release by marvelous alto saxophonist Frank Morgan, whose life story and triumph over heroin addiction and imprisonment was one of the '80s' great success tales. Morgan's biting, yet sensitive and rich alto has rightly been traced to Charlie Parker, but Morgan long ago rid his style of any imitative excesses. He was excellently supported on this program of duets by an amazing lineup of rotating pianists: Kenny Barron, Tommy Flanagan, Barry Harris, Roland Hanna, and Hank Jones.

Perfect

So good it defies words.

A Glass of wine and this album.......perfect!

I can't imagine a more soulful or melodic background for a night of deep thought in front of the fireplace...an all time top ten for me...treat yourself...the "you've changed" track takes my breath away...

You Must Believe in Spring

One important caveat-Frank Morgan does not play on five of these twelve tracks. They are unacompanied piano solos- well played, but probably not what you'd be looking for in a Frank Morgan recording . Of the remaining 7 tracks, Morgan plays only the melody but does not solo on two. The remaining 5 tunes contain some very pretty but very mellow alto sax. Frank Morgan was a brilliant, firey soulful improviser-(listen to the album he made with McCoy Tyner.) This recording does not show that aspect of his playing.

The son of guitarist Stanley Morgan (who played with the Ink Spots), he took up clarinet and alto early on. Morgan moved with his family to Los Angeles in 1947 and won a talent contest, leading to him record a solo with Freddy Martin. Morgan...
